Kung Fu Hustle

kung-fu.jpgHow much can a lawyer secretly withdraw from an estate before being suspended from practice? $327,100. That's how much a New York lawyer removed without authorization from the estate of a former Brooklyn magistrate (known as "the Kung Fu Judge" because he employed martial arts moves while on the bench).  How much additional money did the attorney seek as legal fees for her work as 'guardian' of the judge's estate? $853,100. (Toss up question: Did Elvis ever use Fung Fu for real? Yes, in 1973.)
